Wordless Echoes – 30 Icons for 30 Years of Echoes

A three hour uninterrupted soundscape counting-down the 30 Icons for 30 Years of Echoes

For our last celebration of Echoes’ first 30 years, we’ve selected the 30 Icons of Echoes. These are the artists who have informed the show over our first 30 years. We started with the 25 Icons from our 25th Anniversary, and polled the listeners of Echoes, asking for suggestions for additions to the list. After compiling votes from the poll, we added some new artists, and made some adjustments to the list. New additions include Olafur Arnalds, Agnes Obel, Mike Oldfield, Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Kraftwerk and Jean-Michel Jarre.

In this Wordless Echoes stream, we count down the list, hearing one piece from each musician, starting with #30, and ending up at the #1 Icon of Echoes.
